Morgan / Harbour Selected for Build-Outs at O'Hare Logistics Center
WOODRIDGE, IL Morgan / Harbour Construction announces that the firm has been selected for two projects on behalf of DCT within the O'Hare Logistics Center in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. The projects will include a complete interior build-out at 2200 Arthur Avenue and the redevelopment of 2201 Arthur Avenue.
At 2200 Arthur Avenue, Morgan / Harbour was selected to complete an interior office and warehouse build-out for a new full-building tenant, McNichols Company. Morgan / Harbour completed the shell of the 112,862-square-foot warehouse building for DCT last year. Situated on 6.9 acres, the cross-docked facility is located between Route 83 and Elmhurst Road and minutes from O'Hare International Airport. The building features 32-foot clear height, 38 exterior dock positions and 40 dedicated trailer stalls in a fully secured truck court.
"Over the next few weeks we will complete the interior of the property for McNichols Company, a specialty metals and fiberglass products company that primarily serves customers in the industrial and architectural industries. The work will include the addition of 12,167 square feet of office space as well as a new interior truck dock, an exterior drive-In ramp, an ADA customer service entry, three bridge cranes, and equipment power distribution," said Ben Warriner, Executive Vice President of Morgan / Harbour. "We expect to complete the work for DCT's new tenant by May of this year."
Morgan / Harbour will also complete extensive renovations at the neighboring property, 2201 Arthur Road, a 108,931-square-foot industrial warehouse. A redevelopment for DCT, the project will include demolition of the interior offices and the exterior faÃ§ade, replacement of office windows and the installation of a new metal panel exterior wall system. Morgan / Harbour will also demolish the eastern exterior wall of the warehouse to add 10 exterior truck docks, completely overhaul the electrical service and add a new ADA compliant entrance. The project will also include the removal of an existing rail spur to the building, the demolition and replacement of the 6.88 acre site's asphalt and concrete, the addition of permeable pavers and onsite storm detention, and a new parking area to accommodate 49 cars and 21 trailers. Construction is slated for completion in summer of this year.
Morgan / Harbour's construction team for both DCT projects will be led by Warriner as Project Executive, Eric Schmidt, Project Manager, and Karl Weber, Project Superintendent. Harris Architects is providing the architectural services.
